Aniplex Japan revealed the original anime project Warlords of Sigrdrifa back at the end of February and now has some new and expectedupdates. The series has been set for a July 2020 premiere as part of the summer season but thanks to our friend the coronavirus, the production isn’t able to be done in time for the season. The show has now been formally moved from a July 2020 premiere to an October 2020 premiere.
At this point, we still don’t have anything formal in regards to the production with director, script supervisor, character designer, etc.
Tappei Nagatsuki of Re:Zero is writing the scripts and supervising the project while Takuya Fijima of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivid is working on the original character designs.

Plot Concept: The Pillars suddenly appeared above Earth, threatening all life. A god who called himself Odin came to the aid of humanity as it was driven to near complete defeat. To counter the Pillars, Odin declared a counterattack by bequeathing humanity with the battle maidens Walküres and the “herocraft” as their wings.
Several years later, the battle between humanity and Pillars rages on, with men supporting the Walküres as they soar through the treacherous skies to save the world.
Japan is no exception. Three Walküres confront the giant Pillar looming over sacred Mt. Fuji. Each Walküre is skilled, but each also has issues. And now, an ace pilot has arrived from Europe.
“Now is the time to fight back, humanity. The day of reckoning has arrived. The time of Ragnarok draws nears.”
